Bible in a Year – One Day at a Time

If you listen to Catholic radio you’re aware of the challenges we face to evangelization – polls show that more and more people are identifying as “nones” and show little interest in religion. Yet, in such difficult times, there is also a growing population is yearning for things beyond this life. We saw it last week with the massive response to Steve Ray’s Bible conference, and we’re seeing it now with the incredible popularity of Fr Mike Schmitz’s new Bible podcast. It’s now the most popular podcast on iTunes with more than a quarter million people signing up for a daily dose of Scripture study. Jeff Cavins has helped on the project and he joins us.
